Red Bulls enjoy successful international break

12 players in action

Our boys have been in action for their national teams in two continents in recent days, with some superb performances being registered:

  • Cican Stankovic and Andreas Ulmer joined up with the Austrian national team  after their friendly match against Luxembourg. Andi played 78 minutes in the 2-1 win against Northern Ireland and the full 90 minutes against Norway (1-1). Cican saw both games from the substitutes' bench.
  • Max Wöber played for the Austrian U21 team against Turkey (2-3) and Andorra (4-0) in European qualifying. Max captained the team in both matches, playing in central midfield and scoring a penalty against Andorra to make it 4-0.
  • Majeed Ashimeru travelled with the Ghana national team for a pair of African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Sudan. He wasn't in the squad in a 2-0 win, and he sat on the substitutes' bench for 90 minutes in a 0-1 defeat five days later.
  • Mohamed Camara and Sekou Koita made brief appearances for Mali in African Cup of Nations qualifying against Namibia (won 1-0). Mo played the whole of the second encounter between the sides, while Sekou played 80 minutes and scored the winning goal in a 1-0 win.
  • Enock Mwepu was in action for Zambia in African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Botswana. He played for 90 minutes in both matches, scoring to level the first match 1-1 (it finished 2-1). The second match away was lost 0-1.
  • Jerome Onguene was with Cameroon for two African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Mozambique. While he had to be content with a spot on the bench in the first clash (won 4-1), he cut a good figure in central defence in a 2-0 win in the return encounter.
  • Dominik Szoboszlai underscored his talisman status for the Hungarian national team with a dream goal in the play-off win against Iceland that secured a spot in the EURO finals. He played for 78 minutes of the Nations League match against Serbia (1-1) before his coach Marco Rossi gave him a deserved break against Turkey.
  • Mergim Berisha was in the Germany U21 squad for a friendly match against Slovenia and a European qualifier against Wales. He played 27 minutes in the first match after coming on as a substitute, and saw 60 minutes in action against Wales as Germany qualified for the finals with a 2-1 win.
  • Noah Okafor played on the right wing twice for Switzerland U21 in European qualifying. He was substituted off after 79 minutes against Azerbaijan (2-1) and after 72 minutes against France (1-3).
  • Rasmus Kristensen received his first call-up to the Danish national team. He was on the substitutes' bench for the 2-1 win against Iceland at home, but wasn't in the squad for their 2-4 defeat in Belgium.
